What is the best material for a bathrobe?
The best material for a bathrobe is microfiber. Favored by the finest spas, microfiber bathrobes combine a super-soft feel with lightweight breathability and water absorbency. Because of these qualities, 100 percent microfiber robes tend to be expensive. For a more budget-friendly option, a microfiber-cotton terry blend is a good option.
What is the warmest bathrobe?
When the winter cold starts to set in, there's nothing better than stepping out of the shower and into a super-cosy bathrobe. The warmest bathrobes tend to be made from fleece or cotton velour. Soft and thick, cotton velour combines water absorbency with incredible insulating powers. Meanwhile, fleece – which is made from polyester – has a smooth feel and holds heat in well.
What is the difference between a robe and a bathrobe?
A bathrobe is designed to be worn on bare skin directly after a shower, bath, or steam session. As a result, the fabric needs to have some type of water absorbency. Meanwhile, a robe is a form of loungewear that you can wear any time and layer over your pyjamas. Robes tend to be made from lightweight, silky material or soft, warm, luxurious fabrics such as cashmere.
Can you wear a robe to bed?
Wearing a robe to bed can be a great way to keep warm if you live in a very cold climate. However, it's not necessary in most cases – especially if you already wear pyjamas.
What do you wear under a robe?
In the privacy of your own home, there are no rules about what you can or cannot wear under your robe. Usually, most men pair their robe with loose boxers or pyjama pants for lounging, but you can also layer your robe over a full pyjama set or go naked – it's up to you. Many robes come with an internal tie as well as a sash, so you can secure the open seam.
